Good value

Fits on nice and snug to the SCT with no wiggle room. Has a band inside under the thumb screw so as not to marr your eyepieces, unlike the cheapo proprietary accessories that come with most Celestron/Sky-Watchers.
Not too heavy and not too light either, and has allowed me to get the full 2 inches out of my eyepieces, which is worth way more than the asking price in itself.

This adapter is an attractive and functional addition to my Skywatcher 127 Skymax.

Attached really nice to my Celestron C8 XLT. I really like the interior plate in front of the screw, so I know it won't scratch the accessories I'll attach to it.
